    Calvino Rabeni: lots of squirrels, chipmunks, mice
    Aphrodite Macbain: I don't know why you should return to the big city
    Calvino Rabeni: mice rats of course
    Aphrodite Macbain: It sounds beautiful. What should you do when you encounter a cougar. Play dead or run?
    Calvino Rabeni: the trailheads have instructions what to do when encountering a bear or cougar
    Calvino Rabeni: I made sure to memorize the "what to do if you encounter" instructions for these animals
    Calvino Rabeni: Don't STARE at the BEAR
    Calvino Rabeni: Don't STOP EYE-IN the LION
    Aphrodite Macbain: I thought their sight was bad but their smellers were excellent
    Aphrodite Macbain: dont stop ey-n?
    Calvino Rabeni: keep your eyes on the lion, off the bear
    Aphrodite Macbain: Interesting, you can stare down a cat but not a bear. Hmm
    Aphrodite Macbain: Please don't tell me you wear bear bells
    Calvino Rabeni: If you run, the cat gets a chase-you reflex
    Aphrodite Macbain: Doesn't the bear too?
    Calvino Rabeni: No apparently not

    Aphrodite Macbain: Are these black bears or grizzlies?
    Calvino Rabeni: Just shy little black bears (though they can get pretty big)
    Aphrodite Macbain: aww. just as long as you dont get between a mother and cub
    Aphrodite Macbain: I took pic that last week
    Calvino Rabeni: there's a striking contrast between the gold and the darkness
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes- thanks - I tried to make the leaves very bright and golden and fiddled with the contrast
    Calvino Rabeni: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lgb24cijnu1qb87pxo1_400.jpg
    Calvino Rabeni: do you have that photo online?
    Aphrodite Macbain: no, I downloaded it. I have to put all this on icassa which I don't know how to do yet
    Aphrodite Macbain: Picassa
    Aphrodite Macbain: why?
    Calvino Rabeni: I thought it would be fun to do a side by side post of that photo and the Escher print
    Aphrodite Macbain: really? Is there a relationship between them?
    Aphrodite Macbain: that you see?
